I visited the Denver, CO area for several days in August 2014. During deadband conditions, the Insignia NS-HD01 and my rental car radio received signals up to 100 miles away, mostly into northern Colorado and Wyoming. On 8/24, slight tropo enhancement increased the effective range to 112 miles away.

The blue square screenshots below are from the Insignia NS-HD01, while the white-on-black RDS screenshots were from my rental car radio.

The logs below are updated as I revisit the area. HD Radio and RDS screenshots are added when received and they may not reflect the initial logging of the stations listed below.
